Ready for Spring? Spring Vinyl Plate


Here in AZ, we don't necessarily long for spring.  March is our perfect weather month, our respite before the 100 degree days begin, sometimes in April.  Still, there is something about this time of year.  Two of my three children were born in the spring, so I definitely feel the "renewal of life" vibe that spring brings.

I'm getting my spring decor up, and this year I decided to add this plate:  (I apologize for the bad light- the only time I could take this was at night!)


I found a quote I liked (credited as "Proverb"), created it in my Silhouette software, and slapped it on a dollar store plate.  I planned to do some more vinyl shapes at the bottom, but I thought some rolled fabric rosettes would give it that spring feeling too.  I had everything on hand, so it was free to me!


I hope Spring comes quickly where you live!

  6. Love the cute plate! Thanks for stopping by my blog - I bet these would be great to cover the brace. Just set the beginning chain to the width you need and you'd be set. At 10 rows, it is super simple to crochet. I'm a new follower!
